Thinking in the Wild - Thinking routines beyond the classroom — The Learner's Way

17 June, 2018 - 20:55

Comments:

  • Despite this being a ‘thinking’ conference, despite us all being advocates for structured and scaffolded models of thinking, not one group had applied any thinking routines, utilised a collaborative planning protocol or talked about applying an inquiry model or design thinking cycle. It wasn’t that we didn’t know about them. It wasn’t that we don’t know how to use them. It wasn’t that we don’t value them. We had all the knowledge we could desire on the how to and the why of a broad set of thinking tools and anyone of these would have enhanced the process, but we did not use any of them. Why was this the case and what does this reveal about our teaching of these methods to our students? - Nigel Coutts

  • Twitter is a great place for educators to share ideas. It has become my go to place when I am looking for something to read, a new idea or some inspiration. It is a great avenue for sharing practice, asking questions and building a community. 
     
    But . . .
     
    . . . Twitter has some problems and these seems to be growing. To get the most out of Twitter a degree of caution is advised. - Nigel Coutts
